I am looking for an affordable conveyancing estimate. as we are on a budget.


The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many buyers paying out more than they anticipated in the end, and many firms advertise 'the cheapest conveyancing'. However extra costs will be included in the terms, left unregarded by busy buyers Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.


The local agent has named the property lawyer that they have used before. Should I instruct them?


Your agent will often refer a law firm. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, some agents choose the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.


Do we need a chancel search if I am purchasing in the parish of West Drayton?


Whichever Tolworth parish in which you are purchasing, a property solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search. In older areas of Tolworth, chancel repair can be imposed on the current owners of a home where church councils

have not imposed the same liability on the last owners, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.


We are buying on a new-build brownfield land. It seems antimony (Sb) soil contamination may be an issue.


Given the history of industry and agriculture in parts of Tolworth, topsoil contamination is unavoidable. Also considering issues such as groundwater contaminants like phenols and perchlorate, contaminants affecting Tolworth property will be factored into an environmental search.


How long will conveyancing need, on average?


For most property, the amount of time taken to sell or purchase residential property is not wholly predictable, affected by numerous issues which may affect the property which can include if there is a mortgage. The national average is 8 to 12 weeks, whereas Homeward Legal aim for faster conveyancing, driving the transaction to complete within 6 to 8 weeks.


Would you advise that I get a chancel search? We are purchasing next to church land in Tolworth.


Chancel liability repair costs can run into £100,000s, which owners of affected property will be compelled to pay on demand to the Tolworth Church council. Following a change in the law, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. The solicitor acting on your behalf will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary. Tolworth ecclesiastical properties include Emmanuel and St George.


Will your Tolworth conveyancing solicitor do any conveyancing searches on the London Victorian mid terrace house I am intending to buy?


If purchasing and taking out a mortgage the lender requires you to at least the following Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search and Environmental and occasionally unique particular e.g. a Company Searches.


How much does the fees for conveyancing searches total?


The cost of conveyancing searches noticeably varies. These searches are paid out to a 3rd party.
